SOME MODELS ARE EASY…

Large Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) in Emerald Lake, Montana

I hope this finds […]


Bonaire is Something Special

It’s quite easy to conjure up a lot of wonderful things to say about a dive trip to the island of Bonaire.  That was my impression after hearing others discuss prior trips they have taken there over the years.  Cindy and I just returned from our first trip to Bonaire and I now understand what […]

Powell of Sea to Shore Alliance.  Sea to Shore Alliance is a locally based conservation group working globally to find solutions that will reduce threats to endangered aquatic species, such as manatees, northern right whales and sea turtles, as well as protect or restore […]
